Why register an offshore company in Hong Kong?

One of the most important advantages of a Hong Kong-based offshore company is that the company’s registration documents are the same as for local companies that pay a standard tax of 16.5%. It is therefore possible for third parties not to disclose their tax exemption. This advantage is welcomed by many entrepreneurs, despite the relatively higher start-up costs. It is even more important for businessmen who have the opportunity to work with partners in the Far East.

Useful facts about Hong Kong

Hong Kong is one of the major financial centers in Asia and often serves as a gateway to entry into the Chinese market. Until 1997 it was a British colony. The agreement concluded in 1898 between the United Kingdom and China was then null and void and Hong Kong became a special administrative territory of China – an autonomous district with wide powers for the local government to establish tax and financial policies. Therefore, despite the change of political status, Hong Kong has a so-called “One country, two systems” principle. This means that Hong Kong is at the same time a capitalist territory and is also popular among businessmen for registering offshore tax-free companies. Hong Kong is especially used for this purpose by entrepreneurs with partners in the Far East.

Hong Kong has 7 million inhabitants and has two official languages ​​- Chinese and English. National Currency – Hong Kong Dollar.
